20something Dave in Portland spent 4 years substitute teaching. Fortunately for the rest of us, he kept a journal of his travails...and here it is. 'Personal' writing at its finest and most poignant. "I brought this zine to work and couldn't stop laughing as I read it during lunch. I gave an issue to a co-worker, and soon he was cracking up, too, much to the probable consternation of the others at our table. Each issue is a journal of one semester's worth of days working at a variety of schools ranging from preschools to colleges. As you can imagine, there's alot to tell, and David manages to make it both hilarious and sad, without being disrespectful." - Newpages "If you've ever wondered what goes on in this environment, read this. Taking teenagers to the bathroom, dealing with a screaming autistic boy, and doing art projects for students who are asleep in their wheelchairs are all in a day's work. On Subbing gives a vivid picture of an educational setting most of us know little about, and it's quite sobering." - Xerography DebtRoche, Dave, Sr. is the author of 'On Subbing The First Four Years', published 2004 under ISBN 9780972696753 and ISBN 097269675X.
